Literature: Lothar Romain: Winfred Gaul. Catalog raisonné of the paintings. 1962-1983, vol. II, Düsseldorf 1993, no. 564, ill. p. 158

The painting "D 8" belongs to the environment of analytical works that find their way to elementary statements with succinct color forms. A transversely rectangular blue field is clamped by two broad red color stripes in such a way that to the left and right of the blue there is a highly rectangular white field each, which the viewer supplements to form a partially covered central stripe - red and white divide the picture exactly into thirds horizontally - or as a lateral boundary of the central blue square. Gaul certainly does not use optical effects (superimposition, intrinsic surface) and the psychology of perception (foreground, background) unconsciously, but they do not play a decisive role for him. Rather, he seeks the essence of the color form.
